Q: What would your ideal job be in the future?
A: I hope to work as an environmental or animal rights attorney. I have always been fascinated by other species, but I didn't seriously consider this field until taking biology and anthropology during my sophomore year. These classes motivated me to educate myself on environmental issues. Upon educating myself, I felt the need to take action.
Q: Who would you most want to interview if you had the chance?
A: I would want to interview Barack Obama off-the-record. Speaking with him off-the-record would give me a unique opportunity to get honest answers about the upcoming election, any regrets he might have, and his most proud moments. I really admire his persistence in both politics and in life.
Q: How are you going try to bring change through the Hall Record?
A: I want to report on issues that aren't in the mainstream media, but may strongly affect people's lives. Writing for the HallRecord can help me inform citizens and even encourage progress.
Q: When did you become interested in this type of writing?
A: Coming from a very civically engaged family, I have always been exposed to the news and current events. During the 2016 election, I began to strengthen my passion for politics and better understand the importance of journalism as the fourth estate.
